YBN Cordae Releases The Video For ‘Thanksgiving’
YBN Cordae Thanksgiving Video: “Thanksgiving” is a smooth track where Cordae talks about bringing a girl home to the family for one of the biggest holiday gatherings, but her effort isn’t up to par and the relationship looks bleak.
YBN Cordae released one of the best albums of the year with The Lost Boy but he scored the ultimate win when it was nominated for the “Best Rap Album‘ GRAMMY last week. It was certainly well deserved.
Today, the talented rapper has shared the music video for one of the standout songs on the album, ‘Thanksgiving’ just in time for one of the biggest holidays later this week. “Mac and cheese up in the oven‚ grandma finished cookin’ / Thanksgiving ’round the corner‚ need banana pudding
Brought you home to mama even though you said I shouldn’t / Might not make it to Christmas / But I’m hoping and I’m pushing for a better day,” he sings on the chorus.
During live chat with his fans on YouTube premiere, Cordae had some words of advice: “Ay, anyone meeting their boyfriend/girlfriend’s family for the first time this week….good luck. Just know, Thanksgiving dinners can become HOSTILE.” Watch the apt video directed by APLUS below.
Lyrical Excerpts[Chorus] Mac and cheese up in the oven‚ grandma finished cookin’
Thanksgiving ’round the corner‚ need banana pudding
Brought you home to mama even though you said I shouldn’t
Might not make it to Christmahs
But I’m hoping and I’m pushing for a better day
A good day in the making‚ but you never stay
I could say that you fakin’ on the real, huh, nigga
Why you fakin’ on the real? (Uh‚ yeah, yeah) [Verse 1] You see I brought you home to mama
Introduced you to my cousins
Met my aunties and my uncles
Know they crazy, they be buggin’‚ but
Promise that I got you, didn’t bring you here for nothin’
Know we fightin’, plus the arguments just lead into the fucking
Though some things never rearrange, I know we needin’ change
Altogether through a deeper lane, come through, release the pain
I can be your ibuprofen, keep it real what I be hoping
Know you see all of it’s destined, yeah, our shit was highly chosen
By the universe, the stars align, your love is far divine
Plus I’m really glad you keep it G, that shit is hard to find
Not to mention my intentions was always evolving time
Girl, I hope I’m in your future ’cause I know you fall in mine, uh
